ABORIGINAL ART PROJECT
An Aboriginal Art Project was run at Werrington Youth Centre during Term 3, where the Indigenous Team from Community Junction Inc. popped out to teach young people Aboriginal art and storytelling through art.The assistance of the Aboriginal team not only provided the young people with new art skills but also an education around cultures within the community.
Over five weeks young people at Werrington Youth Centre were able to use their new knowledge and develop
Aboriginal art skills through canvas and clapping stick painting. During the last two weeks young people created a final art piece where they painted a larger canvas which would enter a competition. Young people from the youth centre and workers fromCommunity Junction Inc, voted for their favourite art piece. The winner of this competition will receive a trophy and have their art piece transferred onto a piece of clothing for the Community Junction Inc, Fashion Showcase at theMuseum of Contemporary Art, Sydney on the 24th November, 2016.
